Calculus Workshop

CalculusWorkshopThe best thing to happen to calculus since Newton (and Leibniz)!

  • Practice your skills
  • Work with other students
  • Learn to study more efficiently.

What is the focus of the workshop?

Calculus is one of the foundations of mathematics and is of fundamental importance in scientific and engineering applications. The Calculus Workshop has been provided to help students with this critically important but sometimes difficult subject. The goal of the workshop is to help improve students' understanding of calculus concepts and improve problem-solving skills. Students who have attended the workshop in the past have consistently done better in their calculus classes than students who have not attended.

How does it work?

A separate workshop is provided for MA 171, Calculus A and MA 172 Calculus B. Each workshop is designed to follow the schedule of the corresponding course, providing additional practice for current topics as well as emphasizing the connections and relationships to past topics. Students will work on problems that range from basic to challenging. The methods employed will be varied, from whole group and guided practice to small group and individual work.

What is the student required to do?

The workshop is a free service for the students. There is no homework and no grades are given. The only requirement is to attend and participate in the problem solving sessions.
